…AND HEWLETT-PACKARD VISUAL ENVIRONMENT IS UP ON SPARC FROM SCIENCE APPLICATIONS

By CBR Staff Writer

And Sun Microsystems Inc users in the UK that would like to take advantage of Hewlett-Packard Co’s highly thought-of VUE Visual User Environment graphical user interface, can now get a copy from Loughborough, Leicestershire-based Tectonic Ltd, which is selling a Sparc implementation of the software for #375, or bundled in with its #6,000 SDT 400 Sparc workstations from Trigem Computer Inc. The Visual User Environment, which incorporates OSF/Motif, has been converted for the Sparc by San Diego-based Science Applications International Corp, which also has an IBM Corp RS/6000 version out on beta test, and has plans for a Digital Equipment Corp version. Compaq Computer Corp has shown great interest in VUE, a preference that put just one of the many spanners in the works of the Advanced Computing Environment initiative. Science Applications has also completed a conversion of Hewlett-Packard’s Task Broker network load balancer, and has just got the go-ahead for seven further versions, said to include DEC, Silicon Graphics Inc Iris and IBM.
